Slowik, Bevell Pleased With Promotions


Bob Slowik

Darrell Bevell responded to their promotions within the Packers organization with great enthusiasm Saturday.

Slowik, the team's defensive backfield coach since 2000 was promoted to assistant head coach, while Bevell was promoted from offensive assistant/quality control to offensive assistant.

Both Slowik and Bevell will retain their previous duties while taking on new responsibilities.

"I'm just happy to be part of the Green Bay Packers organization itself and Mike Sherman's leadership," Slowik said. "I feel good that he's thought enough of me to give me such a promotion, so it's exciting."

Sherman is hoping that Slowik can patch up any holes that sometimes result from his dual role as the team's general manager and head coach. Thus, with many of his future responsibilities remaining to be defined, the only sure thing the promotion means to Slowik is "less sleep," he joked.

"Anything (GM/Head Coach Sherman) deems necessary, that's what I'm there for, on top of my top priority which hasn't changed, which is coaching the secondary and making sure those guys are ready to go each and every week," Slowik said.

As for Bevell, in addition to being more active in team practices and meetings, he knows one of his missions will be to help groom a successor to Brett Favre.

"It's a great challenge," Bevell said. "It's something I'm looking forward to...That's what you get into coaching for."
